What a brilliant adventure!!! Took our kids (5 and 10) and they loved it! Seemed quite expensive for a family ticket $290 but, it was well worth it. My eldest and me then did the 're-boot' deal and went back on for $19 each. Drivers were good fun, and loved having kids on the boat. Oh yeah.....then there was the... More

I can't adequately describe the breathtaking, thrill-packed experience this ride provides. Jeremy was the pilot and truly has exceptional driving skills and can place the twin Buick V6 jet engined craft exactly where he wants it with millimeter precision at speeds of 76 mph. Jeremy wins over his passengers with his very funny dialogue (as if his driving skills weren't... More

Had an amazing time on the Hukafalls Jet. Our driver Jeremy was hilarious and made the experience so much more fun. His sick jokes were also a nice touch haha! I recommend this thrill-seeking experience for people of all ages. *Top tip* Hold on tight during 360°! I have attached a photo of my mum in the jet boat not... More

Congratulations a winning combination with a hard case maori driving a jet boat. Exceeded my expectations & was an awesome ride with me being the adult. My step son said it was mean & is already talking about the next ride. Warning: If you use to doing boring family stuff with yours kids this isn't for.

A definite must do in Taupo. Huka falls looks so much better from the boat. It goes very fast and the drivers are both experienced and humorous. Would definitely do this again.

Enjoyed the view near Huka falls. The jet went spinning around a few times ,driven by a skilled driver. After a while, if feels like repetition. Maybe I was expecting much more but my kid loves it.
